      I agree, I thought she looked like a sunglow. However she is my first boa and was sold to me as a albino so I don't know enough about boa morphs to comment!

      Thanks

      How can you tell the difference between a Sunglow and a regular Albino?

      Sunglows will have a noticeably crisper pattern compared to their albino counterparts. Albinism is the absence of enzymes that produce melanin/dark pigmentation, while hypomelanism is the over all reduction of melanin. When you combine those two genes you get a cream colored boa with clean and vivid patterning.

      Like the black rings on normal boa, albino boas will have pure white rings around their tail saddles. Sunglows will not have those rings or it will be less apparent due to the lack of space where melanin would have been.

      Does this photo help with identification? You can see the tail clearer.

      Your boa looks to be a sunglow to me. She lacks the white rings, her color holds from her tail to her head, she has a clean pattern, and the bow tie saddles are pretty convincing.

      Do you know what her parents were?

      No, Sorry I have no idea about the parents.

      It would be nice if she kept some patterning as she gets older, she is so pretty!

      You could call and ask what the parents are. I have seen lipstick albinos look bright like that so it "could" be that, or it could be the owner made a mistake in labeling. Either way, you have a beautiful snake and it will be interesting to see how it grows.

      Definitely a good looking albino if nothing else. If it were me, I would try to prove it's NOT a Sunglow. Worst case scenario you would end up with good looking hets.

      Well I think you have a nice snake no matter what. Very crisp and strong pattern the entire body. I beleive it is a sunglow myself, but I am no expert

      If it was a lipstick they would know it.... people arent just breeding lipsticks and not selling them as such

      That boa is a Sunglow. And a very nice one who produced it?

      Easiest way to tell a sunglow from an albino is the saddles. This is the same for the snow and moonglow morphs, where people have trouble identifying them , but the saddles always give them away.

      Definitely a sunglow, and a nice one at that! Great find! Where'd you get it?
